Jet Boat Races - August 11 & 12, 2018
Come experience the sound of thunder racing across our rivers during the Annual Jet Boat Races. Residents and tourists pack the shores each year to witness the excitement of the weekend event. The 2018 Western Canada Zone Jet Boat Races are scheduled for August 11 and 12.
Head down to the boat launch at Riverboat Park in Whitecourt to get the best view of the boats as they race. Or, head down on Friday night and have a chance to see the boats up close and talk to the drivers at the Friday night Show & Shine.
Whitecourt is proud to be one of only four locations worldwide to host the World Jet Boat Races. Whitecourt plays host every four years - so plan to visit for the World competition in 2019. Other locations worldwide include New Zealand, Mexico and the United States.
